Any additional info on Dark Mane’s bruises? Was it just some brothers’ scuffle or was there anything else involved now that they seem to regularly be in what is/was Matimba territory for a while? The Matimbas seem to have their work cut out for them…

Nick those are fabulous photos – what an experience and thanks for sharing. Was the wound of the first mentioned Majingilane sustained in a fight?

What amazing pictures and an amazing story to go with it. I could easily have sat with you for all of those hours watching these magnificent boys. I hope they steer clear of the Matimbas.

Great photos and text! Majingis are one of my favorite coalitions out there . Dark Mane is carring that nasty wound for some time now. Seems also quite infected and swelled. Were they fighting recently?. And if the answer is affirmative, which lions they were fighting?. Can you give us more information about current lion dynamics? Thanks and keep up the good work! Happy Holidays from Italy 🙂

Nick Kleer it is great to see these 3 powerful Black maned Lions, do you know if they did a reasearch on the size and weight of Lions of Londolozi? They really look big

It seems Hipscar prefers to hold down the fort further west. Do you ever see him?

These lions and photos of them are incredible. How did you capture such clear pictures with them moving in such low light?
